My thoughts about the movie::
I just finished watching it.. and for being a diehard ff7 fan, i must say i liked it. If you are a fan of FF7, watch it. if you dont know about ff7.. watch the cg, ignore everything else.
(i just saved you 3 seconds)
>i really dont see the point of making this movie
ABOUT TIME somone made a movie that applied to the fans and not to just the masses.
Movie of the year be , got to love when "one winged angel" starts playing.
I never finished FFVII, but I liked this movie, its very cool
it was too close to casshern, all about the fancy packaging but zero content
and pretty bad music too, the only part i liked was the ringtone thing
I played FFVII about 30 minutes one time, and it seemed pretty boring.
Well i tought that the movie was fantastic and i think those who played and finished ff7 would be glad that the story turns out this way.
>>13 is a better judge of games than anybody else in the thread!
but for non-gamers like me....im like WTF ( ?_? )
Nah, I liked it and have only played like 15 minutes of it 8)
Thats beacuse you dont care and only watch the CG and anime clishé shit.
>>11 Same here, but the movie is absolutely gorgeous. I came when I saw Tifa.
Using CG for what it's good for... ACTION.
I just want to drop a reply here, I finished watching FF7:AC and I think that is one hell of a great CG movie and I LOVE IT! ^-^ well, at least I enjoyed watching it!
watched it 3 weeks ago...
and i forgot this movie even existed.
this means only one thing: movie no go
This is the movie Square Enix supposed to put out instead of that stupid FF: POS within movie.
I went into Advent Children expecting a weak attempt by Square to squeeze another buck out of the popularity of FF7.
I was right.
I loved in where the whole gang returned to help out against SIN Bahamut, albeit too dramatically (but that's what makes it great I guess)
I wish it was longer, had more of the areas, <b>Wutai</b>, <b>Golden Saucer</b>, like stated before. In fact, I would have been content with the whole game remade into a cg movie, skipping nothing, no words skipped, no actions skipped, no areas skipped. Like a 5 hour movie. It's a great movie, but they could have added more.
><b>Wutai</b>, <b>Golden Saucer</b>
lol I fail, but to add, I think there should have been more of an epic battle, that made you like, get chills. The sephiroth battle didn't really deliver that feeling. It made you think, "lol oh shit yeah this is sick" but it didn't give you the same feeling as if he had 3 different forms, which he probably should have.
wutai and golden saucer would have just made the movie too unfocused. I liked how they tried to keep the movie focused (and yet were still able to incorperate the rest of the cast without diffusing the focus too much). And 3 forms might be fun for a game but since it was done in the game alread, to do it again in the movie? i think it would have been too overplayed. the movie was great the way it is ^_^
this movie reminds me on how strong Sephiroth is. I don't think Cloud is weak, considering he is the strongest of the group. But in the duel, it seemed to me that Sephiroth isn't even trying.
I thought the end fight was playing in Cloud's head, hence Sephiroth dissapearing in a flew of black feathers.
Overall it was technically good, but story and character-wise crap. Too bad Square is so money hungry to even crap on their own great works.
>>30 I agree, in that way they preserved Sephiroth's character and yet gave a reason for Cloud to be able to go one on one with him and still win.
and I don't think it was in Cloud's head. it seemed pretty literal and the sudden power upgrade from the spirit seemed pretty blatent. hey, in that way, it's like sephiroth had multple forms. first as the spirit and then as himself!
I reckon Advent Children has got to be the best CG films i have seen yet but the story people will not get it if they have not played the game. personaly i think its very good for the FF7 fans.
same here haha I cried whenever aerith appeared too.
Such a great movie, awesome CG, amazing fight scenes. I personaly prefer the japanese version over the english one though.
Aeris, ftw. Only reason I loved AC so much.
I love Densha Otoko!!Do you guys recommend any other good dorama?
I thought advent children was pretty lame. The best part was when that victory jingle played on what's-her-name's cell phone after that fight in the cathedral. But the fights were... well, silly. And the plot, well,,, nonsensical... And the characters... well, plastic.
The movie was cool, but you just don't remember it. No chills down your spine, no revelations, nothing too epic.
Story... yeah, whatever, I don't usually follow stories very well anyway, in any movie.
Characters : gotta play the game. They're all showing up suddenly, when Bahamut arrives (fucking shitty design by the way... no, nice to see, but he can't fly like this... you wonder how he can even move... they should have kept the game's design, it was cool, simple, perfect), lending cloud courage and stuff, and then you never see them again.
they changed the original one winged angel to a new version called "Advent one winged angel"
too understand the story you have to play the game, the DVD had a FF7 story line where it showed scenes from the game the follows to the movie. The new blue ray disk contains some new scenes apparently
is there any BD version for this?? never heard of it...
